Story of Buddha Jayanti / Vesak:
Buddhists do not believe in a single god who created the world and everything in it.
In fact, most Buddhists believe in the teachings of a man called Siddhartha Gautama – also known as the Buddha.
Siddhartha is believed to have been a prince who was born into a wealthy family in what is now called Nepal in the 5th Century BC.
It’s believed that Siddhartha Gautama realized that wealth and luxury did not guarantee happiness. So he travelled as a homeless holy man to learn more about the world and saw the suffering in the world.
It’s believed that after six years of studying and meditation on his travels, he became spiritually aware and reached his goal of finding meaning in life. This is called enlightenment.
At this time, he became the Buddha and for the rest of his life he taught his followers of his experiences.
Buddha is a title, rather than a name, which means the enlightened or awakened one.
Vesak is celebrated once a year. The date of Vesak changes each year as it take places at the time of the first full moon of the ancient lunar month of Vesakha, which usually falls in May or early June.
